MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Cris Carter returned to Minnesota on Thursday night for a special halftime ceremony to receive his Hall of Fame ring.

The former Vikings great says it's great to be back in the building where he became a star receiver and connect with the Minnesota fans one more time. After being cast aside by the Philadelphia Eagles due in large part to his struggles with drugs, Carter turned his life and his career around in Minnesota.

When he retired in 2002, he was second only to Jerry Rice in career touchdowns and receptions. After missing the Hall of Fame cut five times, Carter was finally inducted in August.

Carter says his biggest disappointment is he wasn't able to win a Super Bowl with the Vikings.
